Browsing Auctions

Auction browsing is done in multiple sections:

  • Weapons (Swords, Bows, Axes, Magic Weapons)
  • Armor (Hats, Chestplates, Leggings, Boots)
  • Accessories (Talismans, Orbs, Rings, Artifacts)
  • Consumables (Potions, Food, Books)
  • Blocks (Dirt, Stone, any blocks)
  • Tools & Misc. (Tools, Specials, Magic, Staff items)

At the bottom of the GUI, there are a few options: Search (Oak Wood Sign), Item Tier (Eye of Ender), and Sort (Hopper).

Manage Auctions

You can manage your auctions by clicking the Gold Horse Armor in the Auction House GUI. If you don't have any auctions active, it will automatically show you the Create Auction screen.

If you already have an item up for auction then this will show you what the current bid is.

Creating Auctions

To create an auction, click the Gold Horse Armor and this will open up the auction creator. Clicking an item from your inventory will select it as the item to be put up for auction.

  • Clicking the gold bar will let you choose the minimum bidding price.
  • Clicking the clock will let you select the total amount of time players will have to bid on your auction.
  • Clicking the redstone rail will allow you to change the auction to BIN (Buy It Now).

BIN auctions allow players to buy your item instantly without needing to wait any time.

You can retrieve your item after it has been selected by clicking it again. If you leave the Create Auction screen while the item is selected, then you can see it again by going back to the Create Auction screen.

The player must pay 1% of the starting price as well as a scaling fee for hours listed. This serves as an excise tax to reduce inflation and market saturation.

Trivia

  • While the Auction House is disabled, admins usually extend the length of existing auctions by a few hours (or days) to compensate for the downtime.
